Transporting goods is a keystone to the American way of life and truck drivers are the unsung heroes. These men and women encounter daily challenges that threaten the safe and proper delivery of their cargo, in addition to the many safety and logistic issues there is also the large matter of maintaining the truck itself.
Marshall Babbit, Vice President of Maintenance, WSE/MCT (divisions of Comcar), repeatedly dealt with the issue of his sleeper trucks dying due to bad batteries and charging issues. This problem caused both MCT Transportation and its drivers to lose money, time and patience.
MCT Transportation had a problem. Purkeys Fleet Electric delivered the solution.
Purkeys’ thorough process begins by reviewing the current situation, followed by determining the business’s specific needs. Once that’s finished, they provide the right batteries, the right training and the right tools to ensure the health of their batteries so the trucks can get the job done without unnecessary issues.
Babbit is now happy to credit the transformation of his fleet to Purkeys’ expert knowledge. Jumpstarts have decreased, costs have gone down, warranty recovery has improved, and everyone is better off.
“I cannot find a better knowledge base for what we need than Purkeys,” said Babbit.
Not only did Babbit and his company improve the batteries and maintenance in their sleeper cabs, but went onto the rest of the trucks in the fleet and did the same thing. Purkeys’ expert knowledge solved a costly and bothersome issue, while providing the business with the training and tools to continue running a better business.
